Full Description

The 2nd edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1900 shows a large Primitive Methodist Church on North Street. It appears to have superseded a smaller, earlier chapel on Main Street (see SMR 4435). (1) The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1876, at a cost of £930, and further improved at an additional outlay of £70. It comprises a chapel, vestries, gallery, and Sunday school, and will accommodate 350 persons. (2) Examination of modern maps shows that the church has undergone some modern alterations but is still in use today [2009]. (3)
